This is one of Kauai's best bargains. They have lots of interesting flavors and very generous helpings at a better price than most others.

Great shave ice. We ate there twice and were impressed with the great macadamia nut ice cream and the wonderful flavours. Also, they have great prices compared to Jojo's.

Checked this place out for breakfast and was very impressed! They really want you to enjoy your meal and will keep trying to please you. Quick and easy in and out service for breakfast before a long day of adventure.

By far the best shave ice on the island is Ono Ono- you can't beat the value, or the flavor- they don't skimp on the flavoring and the service is always top notch- our favorite!!!
